Quantum Gravity and String Theory


Quantizable Non-Local Gravity

Authors: Diego Marin

It's widely recognized that general relativity emerges if we impose invariance under local translations and local Lorentz transformations. In the same manner supergravity arises when we impose invariance under local supersymmetry. In this paper we show how to treat general relativity as a common gauge theory, without introducing a metric or a tetrad field. The price to pay for such simplification is the acceptance of non-locality. At first glance the resulting theory seems renormalizable. Finally we derive Feynman vertices for such theory.
